Dad doesn’t approve! Scott Disick and Sofia Richie‘s romance seems like its a major cause of concern for her father Lionel Richie. The 19-year-old walked the red carpet at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Patron of the Artists Awards in Beverly Hills on Thursday, Nov. 9 and things got awkward when Lionel was asked if he is a protective papa when it comes to his teenage daughter.
“I am into her business, and she’s trying to keep me out of her business,” the 68-year-old told E! News. “The fact is, I don’t know, how can you sneak when everything is on Instagram?” Sofia got visibly uncomfortable and said, “Well, I’m not hiding anything from you!”
But when he was asked about her love life — as Sofia is currently dating Kourtney Kardashian’s 34-year-old ex-boyfriend Scott Disick — Sofia tried to take over the interview. “He’s good. He’s been very nice. He’s been very cool. He’s very supportive,” she said, as her dad made a gun-like gesture with his hand and pointed it to his head. “Whatever that means.”
Scott and Sofia first sparked dating rumors back in May when they were first spotted hanging out together in Cannes. They dated off and on throughout the summer, but things started to get serious in September, and sources previously revealed to In Touch that Sofia’s dad isn’t happy that his daughter is dating someone who is 15 years her senior. Watch the video below to find out how Lionel reacted to Scott and Sofia’s relationship.
Meanwhile, there are other people who don’t approve of Scott and Sofia’s relationship — Scott’s ex and baby mama Kourtney Kardashian. Source revealed to In Touch that Kourt and Scott got into an explosive fight after Kourtney refused to let Scott introduce Sofia to their three children.
